Back Where it All Began

The Dicksons, (yes, almost all of us), from both sides of the country made a trip out to Provo, Utah - where Bart and I met (as well as John and Debbie, Bart's parents) where Cade was born and were all things began for our little family. We went for the week to wish Bart's youngest brother Mark off into the Missionary Training Center (MTC). He will be serving a 2 year mission to Colorado Springs and we wanted a chance to see him one last time before he left. All of Bart's family from Florida flew in as well. We had a great time and were so glad we could meet our 3 neices we'd never seen and spent some great time together.

We were grateful the boys could see Mark
leave into the MTC. We hope it will be an
experience they will never forget and an
example to them through their years ahead

We had fantastic meals together...

and made wonderful memories watching the cousins (and dads) playing at parks, eating candy, swimming in the hotel, watching BYU baseball games and riding the Heber Creeper Railroad...

Thanks for the great time Dickson family!! We already can't wait for next time.

HI Mandy! Have a good summer. Schools got out here this week, so I am on summer break now. It is so nice to have a break from teaching. Love it, but welcome the break!!! Keep in touch okay.

I ran into one of my students and her mom at Target the other day and she said how she was counting down the days until school started again. :) Best wishes with your summer! My mom is doing well. Thank you for asking. :) The surgery went very well and even better than the doctors expected. God is good!! She will be going into the hospital this week for her lung cancer treatment. She has to be in ICU for this treatment, so she will feel really bad. :( It is for the good, so that helps her spirits some.
